Russia’s Kaspersky Lab Denies US Claims of Cyber Espionage

Russia’s Kaspersky Lab Denies US Claims of Cyber Espionage

Kaspersky Lab Headquarters, Moscow

Russian-based Kaspersky Lab has rejected claims of involvement in cyber spying or having political connections with any country.

Alwaght- Russian-based Kaspersky Lab has rejected claims of involvement in cyber spying or having political connections with any country.

In a statement, the cyber security firm said: "Kaspersky Lab is a private company and has no political ties with any countries anywhere in the world. The company has never assisted the governments of any countries in carrying out cyber espionage" .

The company also noted that US officials had repeatedly been offered Kaspersky’s cooperation, including the official verification of the software code.

Kaspersky Lab is willing to help any government agencies in their investigation of its activities, as the company is fully convinced that any in-depth study of its work can only confirm that accusations of bias are totally unsubstantiated," the press service emphasized.

"By all appearances, Kaspersky Lab happened to be dragged into a geopolitical fight where each side is trying to use the company as a pawn in its game," the company added.

This comes after the Trump administration earlier restricted the use of Kaspersky Lab products by US government agencies amid rumors about the company’s links to Russian intelligence agencies in the US mass media.

The Kremlin said on Tuesday it regretted the U.S. move against Kaspersky Lab, adding: "We certainly believe that this is a politicized decision".

"This is an absolutely commercial company which provides commercial services which are not only competitive but are super-competitive globally," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told a conference call with reporters.

Kaspersky's anti-virus software is popular in the United States and around the world, and the firm has been a leading player in the cyber security market for decades.

"Russia as a state will continue to spare no effort to protect the interests of our companies abroad," Peskov said.
